A human genomics community
VarSome's mission is to bring together the global life sciences community and facilitate the exchange of information that will lead to new discoveries. To support the community, we at Saphetor, have contributed a search engine and knowledge base for human genomics.
A large continuously updated data library
So far, we have accumulated about 50 billion items of variant and gene annotation and have made it easily accessible, so you will quickly get what you are looking for.
We hope you find VarSome useful. If we have forgotten something, please let us know. We welcome your feedback! (confidential feedback form at the bottom of the page).
VarSome is free!
For research use only. We strive to include as much data and features as possible - this is our commitment to the life sciences research community.
Link to VarSome
You can link to VarSome from your internal or public website, even your Excel sheet. Instructions.
If you use VarSome in your research, please remember to cite our publication:

A RESTful API for your own applications
VarSome is built on top of our REST API infrastructure that can also be used by institutions wishing to annotate their data at a fraction of the cost of discovering and gathering variant information from different databases across the Internet. Click here for more information.
An embeddable web platform
VarSome is built using web components. Would you like to include genomic variant data in your internal or public website? It is as easy as adding 5 lines of html code to your application. Instructions.
VarSome in your premises
Both VarSome and the variant API behind it can be installed and maintainted within the infrastructure of organisations. If you are interested, contact us.
Important note for lecturers / course coordinators
We are honored that VarSome is increasingly being used in lectures, seminars and presentations. Please contact us if you are planning to give a course or lecture featuring VarSome, so we can white-list your IP address. This will ensure that you are not affected by usage limits for unregistered users during the session.
